Aquino, Villar shift focus to votes of poor

n the watershed Pulse Asia survey of Jan. 22-26, the ground under the presidential race shifted violently, changing completely the panorama of the 2010 election and making it more volatile, less than three months into the polls.

The survey showed the front-runner since September 2009, Sen. Benigno Aquino III, locked in a statistical tie with Sen. Manuel Villar. Aquino polled 37 percent and Villar, 35 percent, as the first choice of respondents.

The obvious picture from the survey is that Villar made a remarkable leap-frog, gaining 12 percentage points from the December 2009 survey, while Aquino declined by 8 percentage points. The survey marked the turning point of the resurgence of Villar and the decline of Aquino.

GMA poured P459-M worth of projects in her district: critic

MANILA, Philippines – President Arroyo poured a whopping P459 million worth of infrastructure projects in the second district of Pampanga, where she’s seeking a congressional seat in 2010, according to documents provided by Liberal Party senatorial candidate Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros.

Documents from the Department of Public Works and Highways as of Nov. 30, 2009 show that most of the projects involved construction or improvement of roads, drainages, and desilting and declogging of rivers.

It smacks of electioneering and should be a reason to disqualify the President from joining the congressional race, Hontiveros said. The lady lawmaker has filed a disqualification case against President Arroyo.

Looking ahead: Leadership changes and uncertainty in 2010

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines will see changes in political leadership in 2010, with an opposition president and vice-president likely to take over by noon of June 30, 2010.

However, the political transition is paved with a lot of uncertainty brought about by an untested poll automation technology and most voters still unfamiliar with the process.

Based on the October 22-30 Nationwide Survey on Election-related Probes, 61% of Filipinos had little or no knowledge about the Automated Election System (AES). Eighty percent of voters among the D and E socio-economic groups had little knowledge about it.

A plurality of 43% were undecided when asked whether the May 2010 automated elections will be “credible” for the citizenry. A total of 16% disagreed while 40% agreed that the automated polls will be credible.

Gonzales seeks more active AFP role in polls

MANILA, Philippines—The Department of National Defense (DND) is working on an agreement with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) that will provide the military a more active role in the 2010 elections.

Acting Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales said the new memorandum of agreement (MOA) would allow the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to meet the challenge “head on” instead of “shying away” from its responsibility during elections.

“We will show that the AFP is the true protector of democracy and our people’s will. We will prove the detractors of our soldiers wrong,” Gonzales said in a statement.

Wannabe leaders: from serious to bizarre

The 11-day filing of certificates of candidacy (COC) for the 2010 polls drew more aspirants – from the serious to the bizarre – vying for national posts compared to the previous national elections, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said Tuesday.

One presidential aspirant Rigoberto Madera Jr., for example, declared that if he gets lucky, he would move on to conquer the US, the United Nations, and eventually the world.

Another presidential hopeful, 73-year-old Manny Lopez, meanwhile, said he’s better than US President Barack Obama.

Alicman Ali, a Maranao running for vice president, said he has the ability to stop the decades-old war in Mindanao.

More established presidential candidates, meanwhile, resorted to gimmickry – from marathons to marching bands to rallies – to make the formalization of their bids noticeable.

Dubbing themselves the “transformers”, the two filed their certificates of candidacy at the Commission on Elections office in Intramuros, Manila past 2 p.m.

Gordon, who is running for president, said the tandem was formed Monday night after finding out that he and Fernando have similar views on issues.

“Walang tamad sa tambalang ito. Wala rin tanga sa tambalang ito. Hindi kami kapos. We may not have much money but we have enough. Besides we already know what happened to leaders who love money too much,” Gordon told reporters.

Comelec urged: Let showbiz politicians work after filing

Ara Mina

Advisory for actor-politicians out next week

MANILA – Actress Ara Mina, who intends to run in the 2010 elections, appealed to the poll body on Tuesday afternoon to allow her to continue appearing on TV after she files her certificate of candidacy this month, arguing that she can’t afford to lose her source of income way ahead of the official campaign period.

Mina submitted to the office of Commission on Elections (Comelec) chair Jose Melo her appeal letter, which was also signed by 2 other TV personalities eyeing local elective posts in next year. They were Maybeline dela Cruz of the soap opera “May Tinik sa Dibdib” and Alfred Vargas, a member of the “Darna” cast.

She said the letter hopes to clarify Comelec rules on actors and actresses who will join the 2010 races.

Because of the automation of the elections, the Comelec pushed back to as early as December 1 the deadline for the filing of certificates of candidacies because it needs more time to print the new type of ballots, where the names of candidates are all printed.
